Unfortunately for me, when closely inspecting the rest of my collection of boots, I realised that all of them now have holes in soles, worn heels and scuffed toes. Not only do I need to replace one pair of boots, I need to replace all three.
Boots are my absolute love over Autumn and Winter. They are essential for coping with cold and wet weather (as well as kicking about in leaves) and I wear them every day. Currently I have biker style ankle boots as well as knee high boots in tan and black.
My big dilemma when purchasing new boots is how much to spend. Boots that I've bought in the past haven't lasted me very long. So this year I'm wondering whether to invest more money. I'd love to hear your opinions and if anyone has any recommendations for some good boots that will last me more than a season I'd love to hear.
For now, here are some boots that I currently have my eye on to replace my current collection.
First up a cheap pair of knee high boots from New Look that come in tan and black, they are priced at £24.99. They look very similar to a pair I had previously so they might not last too long.
Back to another old favourite boot shop, Dorothy Perkins. This time a replacement for my biker boots, this pair is £39.00
Similarly this pair from New Look is £27.99. Cheap and cheerful but perhaps not very robust.
A knee high pair that are slightly more expensive are these from Office, originally priced at £95.00 they are now selling for £67.00. This seems like a good option, the original price tag might mean they fair better in bad weather.
Unfortunately the next lovely pair are not in the sale. Again they are from Office but with a price tag of £115.00 would end up being the most money I've ever spent on a pair of boots.
So there is my great boot debate! Pay day is fast approaching so decisions need to be made. If anyone has any tips on where to buy great long lasting boots I'm all ears.
